Country Apple Squares

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by truebrit

I found this recipe in a newspaper a number of years ago, and I have been making it ever since. The apples go so well with the crumb and cream cheese layers. When fall comes around, this dessert is a real hit! Hint: Many reviewers have suggested doubling the amount of cream cheese!

After reading the reviews I increased the cream cheese filling by adding another 8 oz peanut butter instead of cream cheese. I also cooked the apples a little in the microwave before baking them and added a little extra butter to the topping. This was a huge hit in my lab, people really loved it!
